Keyboards seldom make a name for themselves, and most companies really wish their ‘anti-ghosting’ technology was less often confused with the Ghost Busters. A buzz word is a crutch which is easier to write than it is to understand, and instead of using this tactic Das Keyboard made its focus on changing how people type. The first Das keyboard was created in 2005 with blank keycaps. I love keycaps of all design, but what does it mean when a company provides no key legends to the end user? By removing text from the keyboard it is proposed one would become more familiar with their keyboard. This claim works for the same reason birds try their hardest to fly after being coaxed out of the nest. Like a fledgling bird, the owner of a Das Keyboard is now on their own trying to succeed without a safety net.
Since their debut in 2005 Das has grown to provide the newest educational tools which expose owners to better typing practices. These tools include but are not limited to their high quality Cherry MX keyboards, cross platform support, blog-posts suggesting the best practices for the self-help typist, and their avid sponsorship of typing competitions.
